Community Based Adaptation Network (CBA Network)

CBA Network

The Community-Based Adaptation Network (CBA Network) is a free, online platform aimed at practitioners and organisations working on community-based adaptation to climate change. It is a dynamic space for open discussion about community-based adaptation issues, direct interaction with like minded individuals in our sector, and a place to share resources and case studies. The CBA Network aims to be a  vibrant community where we’ll develop innovative responses to climate change. Be part of the conversation.

Aims of the CBA Network:

1. To create more communication and direct interaction between CBA practitioners. 

2. To enhance discussion and sharing of ideas linked to CBA. 

3. To create a space where information regarding CBA can be disseminated to active practitioners quickly. 

4. To create greater access to an abundant and accessible knowledge base and resource library for the themes of CBA.

The 14th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA14)

Join us online for the 14th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA14).  It’s the chance to meet fellow practitioners, listen to local perspectives and share experiences of effective solutions for building resilience to climate change.

COVID-19 has made this year like no other. CBA14 in 2020 will be very much the same and yet fundamentally different by going fully virtual.

While we won’t be able to meet in person, our virtual CBA Conference platform will create fantastic opportunities to meet and network with new people, catch up on the latest ideas and hear about activities on the ground that are working to put people at the centre of adaptation.
